Sorry it’s been a little quiet! It’s been crazy around here, getting ready for Christmas and finishing up last minute work things. I’m just about to bake cookies with my friend Jamie. Last night I made up a batch of my very favorite, Georgia Street Slices. My great-grandma Nowlin started making them ages ago; I’m guessing she found the recipe in a magazine in the ’50s or ’60s, because last year when I searched for the recipe online I couldn’t find it and had to ask my mom for it. So here they are! No photos of it (I don’t have my camera here at the moment)–instead here are some pictures from last Christmas. (Rufus didn’t get any cookies but he sure tried) These things are amazing, and not even that hard to make. Basically they’re no-bake chocolate bars with vanilla in the middle, almost like candy and super addicting. I’m trying to spread the recipe around the world!
Georgia Street Slices
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
5 tbs cocoa
2 cups chopped up vanilla wafers
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbs vanilla pudding mix
1/2 tsp vanila
1 can condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Bottom later: Melt over hot water (double boiler): 1/2 cup butter + 1 1/4 cups sugar + 5 tbs cocoa, mix well. Take off heat and add one well beaten egg, mix well. Next add 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs, mix. Spread into the bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 inch pan and chill.
Middle layer: Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbs dry vanilla pudding mix, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup soft butter, 1/4 cup condensed milk. Spread over bottom layer and chill.
Top layer: Mix over double boiler: 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup condensed milk. Mix well and spread over middle layer. Chill.
Hope you like them!
